argparse help incorrectly breaks long lines on U+u00A0 NO-BREAK SPACE.

The attached script has been run on Python 3.5.3rc1 in a terminal window 80 columns wide, and it produces output::

    usage: [-h] [--no-condensedxxxx]

    optional arguments:
      -h, --help          show this help message and exit
      --no-condensedxxxx  Disable default font-style: condensed. Also disables "M+
                          1M" condensed monospace.

I expected the last line should have broken just before the "M+ 1M", rather than in the middle.
